He practices clinically at the UCSF Parnassus campus and directs the UCSF School of Medicine’s violence curriculum for medical students – a curriculum that ranges from understanding how structural violence impacts health to development of competencies for adequate screening and treatment for various forms of violence. His research interests include studying long-term outcomes after surviving firearms injury, how to address social determinants of health in the emergency department, national trends in emergency department utilization, and novel applications of emergency ultrasound.

Mike McLively, J.D. joined Giffords Law Center in 2013 and is now senior staff attorney and director of Giffords Law Center’s Urban Gun Violence Initiative, where he oversees an effort to use policy mechanisms to support and promote evidence-based violence intervention strategies aimed at preventing gun violence in America’s most impacted communities. An expert on gun policy and urban gun violence, Mike authored Giffords Law Center’s groundbreaking 2016 report Healing Communities in Crisis and regularly speaks to state and local leaders on the need to address the day-to-day shootings that fuel America’s gun violence epidemic.
